Essential Nutrition – critical in dry soils for plant health
Written on 05/08/19
With soils across the west being drier than the norm, it’s critical to give the seed some essential nutrition right from the start to drive rooting and enable the crop to make use of the limited moisture available. The March 31st map from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada indicates much of the prairies are abnormally to moderately dry.
Adding a seed nutrient dressing to your seed treatment will ensure early root establishment to take advantage of spring moisture when it does become available. Seed nutrition improves plant health to overcome the environmental stress of the spring season in three key ways:
- Increase early season vigour
- Cold starts the crop
- Increase root surface area
Watch the video below to learn what nutrients are important at seeding and how you can address the nutrient imbalance in your seed.
